Doing supply in a school you've interviewed in

    Where I live, have ended up doing supply in several local schools that I have applied for jobs in over the years. They love me as a supply teacher and ask for me specifically, but I never seem to nail that elusive job! Too expensive compared to NQTs I am reliably informed.
  2. I had an interview recently at a school where i have previously done some supply but didn't get the job.They then actually asked me which agency i was working through and booked me for supply for the folowing week so i must have had a good interview lesson. Take it all on the chin and act professional always.

    I got a bit weirded out at first but someone told me "Just because you didn't get the job doesn't mean they think you are a bad teacher."

    You should have told them to book you direct, as a casual employee, where you'd submit an LA timesheet, get an LA payroll number and be paid the correct rate for the job!
  4. Not only did i get supply work in the school, the first 'teacher' I saw was the person who got the job i went for!!! So take the advice above and go for it.
  5. I've been in the same boat here. When I have worked supply in a school where I have been interviewed or even applied and not get an interview, I tend to go the extra 2 miles and show the school they made a mistake by not picking me.
